Max Hammer, M.D.
I was very impressed with Dr. Hammer and his staff. They have this surgery and the whole process down to a science. They know excatly what needs to be done & how to get there. They were very caring and compassionate people. They made me feel very comfortable. They have a thorough program in place with the hospital & hospital staff, psychologist, physical therapist, nutrionist and group sessions. They will look after you for the rest of your life. I would totally recommend him for anyone considering WLS.

Hi, my name is Kim and I am fat, I am an overeater, I am an underachiever. Well friends, not for long. I am finally going to do something about it. I'm not going to wake up one morning and everything be fine. I have to work for it and for once I am going to. I have been fat all my life, but looking back 12-15 years ago and I weighed 185 lbs, boy would I be happy with that right now. But no, that is still overweight and I will be a healthy person. There's so much to do and I can't sit on the sidelines anymore. I'm tired of people staring at me like I'm an elephant, especially at the grocery store or in restaurants. It makes me not even want to leave my house anymore. But I refuse to hide anymore. I have tried a lot of "diets" and excerise programs, only to get discouraged quickly and go back to my old ways and gain even more weight. I want a permanent fix. Of course that means I'm going to have to work and work hard but I am finally ready to do just that. It's going to be a completely new me. I probably won't even know who I am but that's what I need. I have compusively let myself down, I don't stand up for myself, I don't go for things I know I'd be good at, I let people walk all over me. Not anymore. God didn't create me for all that. He made me for a purpose. I already know what that purpose is but was too scared to do it and all because of the way I look. I can see myself now, standing before God while He judges me and He asks "why didn't you do what I called you to do" and all I can say is because I was fat. It's time to stand up and be counted.
